So far it has worked Very well, my strength and weight is going upwards. The program is easy to follow. Im eating well. So life is good

Any toughts on this program?
If it's working, stick with it! I love simple set/rep schemes like that.

There are some lifts that I find extra volume to be valuable, such as pressing movements, but you seem to have that covered well.

I personally believe there should be balance between chest press, overhead press and rows for shoulder girdle long term health, but some don't do that. It's your call, mileage may vary.

As far as reps, when the 3's become easy are you adding weight across the board on all weeks?
